Corrosion behavior of extremely hard Al-Cu/Mg-SiC light metal alloy composites
In this study, hot-pressing technique was used to produce Al-5wt.% Cu-20 vol.% SiC and Al-5wt.% Mg-20 vol.% SiC particulate metal matrix composites. The powders were ball milled and the powder mixtures were hot pressed uniaxially under a pressure of 550 MPa at a temperature of 450 °C in vacuum atmosphere for different holding times of 30, 60 and 120 min. A common observation was that the density of Al composites decreased slightly with increasing hot press sintering time. The Al-5wt.% Cu-20 vol.% SiC samples exhibited maximum density of ∼95.7% ρth (theoretical density) and Al-5wt.% Mg-20 vol.% SiC compo...

Homophily of music listening in online social networks of China
In this study, two online social networks of the same group of active users who listened to complete songs over 1000 times and posted over 100 tweets are established, separately, in Netease Music and Weibo. Through presented multiple similarity measures, it is evidently demonstrated that homophily does exist in music listening for both online social networks. The unexpected listening similarity in Weibo also implies that knowledge from generic social networks can be confidently transferred to domain-oriented networks for context enrichment and algorithm enhancement. Comprehensive factors that might function in the formatio...

Redundant modulatory effects of proinflammatory cytokines in human osteoblastic cells in vitro.
CONCLUSIONS: Overall, these results suggest that IL-17, TRAIL and TNF-α sustain bone tissue inflammation associated with decrease of calcified component. To do so, they act redundantly each other, to amplify the inflammatory response in the bone. In conclusion, unravelling novel molecular targets within the bone-cytokine network represents a platform for innovative treatment of bone diseases due to immunological diseases such as psoriatic arthritis.

Native T1 and T2 mapping by cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging in pressure overloaded left and right heart diseases.
Conclusions: In pressure overload diseases, both T1 and T2 values increase in the myocardium. The alterations seen in the RV insertion sites in the septum was more pronounced with RV pressure overload. T2 values also correlated with structural and functional remodeling in both diseases. Combining T1 and T2 mapping may help to better characterize the alternation of myocardial composition in pressure overloaded heart diseases. PMID: 29997963 [PubMed]

Cellulose-polyethyleneimine blend membranes with anomalous nanofiltration performance
Publication date: 15 October 2018Source: Journal of Membrane Science, Volume 564Author(s): Tiara Puspasari, Tiefan Huang, Burhannudin Sutisna, Klaus-Viktor PeinemannAbstractA unique method for the preparation of cellulose-polyethyleneimine (PEI) blend membranes for nanofiltration is presented. Trimethylsilyl cellulose was used as a precursor for the blend membrane fabrication followed by a simple hydrolysis to regenerate the cellulose structure. The resulting homogeneous blend membranes exhibited high neutral solute rejection in water, which was surprisingly better than the performance of the individual membranes due to th...

Simplifying the Screening of Obstructive Sleep Apnea With a 2-Item Model, No-Apnea: A Cross-Sectional Study
Conclusions:The No-Apnea, a 2-item model, appears to be a useful and practical tool for OSA screening, mainly when limited resources constrain referral evaluation. Despite its simplicity when compared to previously validated tools (STOP-BANG and NoSAS), the instrument exhibits similar performance characteristics.Citation:Duarte RL, Rabahi MF, Magalhães-da-Silveira FJ, de Oliveira-e-Sá TS, Mello FC, Gozal D.

Positive Airway Pressure Therapy Is Challenging for Patients With Epilepsy
Conclusions:Patients with epilepsy are less likely to be adherent to PAP therapy during the first month of treatment, as compared to adults with OSA but no epilepsy. Moreover, PAP therapy could not sufficiently reduce AHI in up to 72% of patients. These findings highlight the need for careful monitoring of PAP treatment in patients with epilepsy, as untreated OSA may worsen seizure burden.Citation:Latreille V, Bubrick EJ, Pavlova M. Positive airway pressure therapy is challenging for patients with epilepsy.J Clin Sleep Med. 2018;14(7):1153–1159.

Sensors, Vol. 18, Pages 2280: Loosening Monitoring of the Threaded Pipe Connection Using Time Reversal Technique and Piezoceramic Transducers
ng Li Threaded pipe connections are commonly used in the oil and gas industry in particular to connect casting strings, drill pipe strings, production and transportation risers, and pipelines. As the most critical components in the entire chain, maintaining a sealed and secure connection while being subjected to environmental loads and pollution is very important and necessary to reduce potential leakage risk and guarantee the safety of the entire chain. In this paper, an effective approach using time reversal technique and lead zirconate titanate (PZT) transducer was developed to monitor the looseness of the threaded ...

Longitudinal increase in blood biomarkers of inflammation or cardiovascular disease and the incidence of venous thromboembolism.
CONCLUSIONS: The two most likely explanations for our result are that (a) rising NT-proBNP reflects increasing subclinical volume overload and potentially increased venous stasis or subclinical PE that went unrecognized over time or (b) rising NT-proBNP is a risk marker for impending cardiac disease that places patients at risk for VTE.

How Can I Get Rid of Anxiety?
As an advocate for OCD awareness, I get lots of emails from people. One of the most frequent questions I receive is some form of “How can I get rid of this terrible anxiety that is ruining my life?” While I’m not a therapist, I have learned a lot in the eleven years since my son was diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder, and one thing I know for sure is that is not the question any of us should be asking. The reason? Well, for one thing, a life without anxiety is not only an unattainable goal but an unhealthy one. Anxiety serves a purpose and a few of the ways it can benefit us include: Our bodies instinctive...
